“Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: he 94 vintage is in top form here, the typical dirty Caroni aromas full of rubber and tar meet bone dry wood, smokiness, dark spices and a touch of sweetness and fruitiness. At home on the extremely dry side and therefore what for HTR purists. Great cinema.”

“Wahnsinns Abfüllung! Der für mich mit Abstand beste 94er Velier Caroni…. Gummi Teer und alles Dreckige, was man bei Caroni erwartet. Dennoch alles rund eingebunden. Zusätzlich findet man tolle Fruch/Holz und Gewürz Noten.”

“High viscosity, beautiful red gold. Wonderful polish and varnish notes, burnt sugar, spice. Tar, rubber and petrol, followed by overripe mango. Powerful, perfectly melted. Hammer nose. Then really cool in the mouth!!! Oily, full-bodied. Sweetness! Great spice, polish, etc. Awesome!!! 😁😁😁😁 Like the mouth and nose better than the straw hat. It can't deny its relationship to the 23 Guyana Stock either. Very complex without anything standing out. Of course not an easy sipper, every drop needs to be savored. The quintessence of a Caroni. Hammer.”
